New Zealand's Orcon selects Alcatel-Lucent's Velocix

Orcon, which provides calling and Internet services to both residential, business and wholesale customers around New Zealand, will deploy Alcatel-Lucent's Velocix Digital Media Delivery Platform in key centres across New Zealand. The network will allow Orcon to offer broadcasters, content distributors and web-site owners a faster and more efficient connection to broadband users across multiple networks and devices.

"As video-on-demand and streaming TV web sites grow in popularity, the amount of online video watched by broadband users is growing at an incredible rate," said Charlie Boyd, Head of Wholesale at Orcon. "By leveraging Alcatel-Lucent's Velocix infrastructure, we can offer content providers a local content delivery network (CDN) solution that meets their specific requirements, with the assurance of knowing its technology and services are proven by telcos and broadcasters around the world."
